Description: It is actually very easy to cook well and obtain great dishes if one begins with first choice ingredients, that's what we do every day, searching for the best products is our philosophy. We are mentioned by the most authoritative Guides with excellent evaluations.The restaurant is housed in the old lemon house with a glass and wrought-iron conservatory, overlooking the outside dining terrace with its ancient fishpond and rose-clad pergola. It is famous for its cuisine focused in the territory. A pleasant experience made of many different details: a refined and bright ambience, the terrace with its breathtaking view of the valley for romantic dinners, a superb Tuscan cuisine and a vast wine list with the Baracchi wines as well.

Beautiful property, beautiful people, beautiful service, beautiful wine, beautiful food what more in life can you ask for? Il falconiere is a dream that must be experienced. Sylvia, Riccardo and their son Benedetto are the most hospitable people you could ever hope to come across. Their restaurant, cuisine and staff do everything for the comfort of their guests. You feel a Tuscan luxury but a down to earth welcome, it is a special experience. You will want to return over and over again. So convenient to Cortona center with breathtaking views of the valley. Surrounded by the family vineyards and olive groves you get swept away in the views. The cooking class is wonderful, the spa a dream and at the dinning room perfect for a special meal not to be forgotten. Do not miss a chance to stay here or a chance to eat in the wonderful restaurant.

We experienced a completely different experience. First, the mad dash up the side of the mountain along stone lined walls with absolutely no room for oncoming traffic in pitch dark was different. The locals seem to know where the mid-point of these long single lanes are and make the other guy back up to a passing point. That was different.

We wish we could have seen the retaurant during the daylight as it appeared to be in a spectacular location.

A private wine tasting on the deck overlooking a valley lit with a hundred points of lights flickering in the cool night's air. That was different.

A short tour of the wine cellar revealed some astonishing vintages clearly not for sale.

A five course meal each exquisitly paired with the local estate's wine. The food was perfectly plated and served at just the correct pace. Overall, the fare was a smidgen short of outstanding. Our wine glasses were never completely empty. Nevertheless, we very much enjoyed this restaurant.

Food, some dishes very good some very bad. No way this restaurant derserves a michelin star. I have just come from Paris I know what restaurant deserves a star. Not even close.

Dear Golfbob,
thank yuo for your review. Our Michelin starred restaurant has a very good service, we want every client has the best attention, for this reason only the Maitre can take the orders, organizes the arrival and time to seat for each clients in order to have the possibility to dedicate most time of possible to everybody. We don’t have 21 tables in the restaurant but just 16. Our terrace with its breathtaking view is the best place to enjoy summer evenings. We don’t have a fast food service because clients usually love to spend their time seating and relaxing, they love taste their wine in peaceful atmosphere. Calm, charm, cuisine, courtesy and character are our slogan! I’m sorry if your personal desires and taste are so far from our style. I hope to have the possibility to change your opinion next time!
